My mother was there a few years ago and they were very good to her. It is very clean and the staff was wonderful. the thing about anyone going to a nursing home is you need to constantly visit them day, night (unexpectantly), don't set a specific routine when to visit. Stay in contact. It is so sad that there are so many in a nursing home that no one visits. Hope you find the right home for yours.....

Before the old one closed, I do know that they were wonderful to my grandma. It was a clean enviroment and a help to my family. Yes, you do have to make constant visits for the sake of your loved ones. To let them know they are not just cast aside, but also to ensure the quality of care in which they recieve. and I agree that visits must be unexpected at different times of the day if at all possible. There are alot of bad nursing homes out there (just read and watch the news), however, you have todo research. Talk to people that have loved ones that live there and alot of them. You can visit and speak with the residents themselves. Ask if they are happy and cared for to thier satisfaction. Be diligent. Do not comprimise anything. This is your responsibilty as a loved on of the elderly. It helps alot if there are several family members that can rotate visits. It is not so much a strain on one or two people. and it helps the morale of your loved one. But back to the question. When It was in the older nursing home, it was a wonderful place for our Mother/Grandmother.
